Unique topographic separation of two spectral classes of cones in the mouse retina
We have found two immunologically distinguishable cone types in the retina of the mouse, each localized to two opposite halves of the eye. One cone type was labelled by the monoclonal antibody COS‐1Expand

The system of cerebrospinal fluid-contacting neurons. Its supposed role in the nonsynaptic signal transmission of the brain.
Recent investigations confirm the importance of nonsynaptic signal transmission in several functions of the nervous tissue. Present in various periventricular brain regions of vertebrates, the systemExpand

Two different visual pigments in one retinal cone cell
The retina of the mouse, rabbit, and guinea pig is divided into a superior area dominated by green-sensitive (M) cones and an inferior area in which cones possess practically only shortExpand

Two cone types of rat retina detected by anti-visual pigment antibodies.
The presence of two distinct cone types was demonstrated in the retina of the rat using two cone-specific monoclonal anti-visual pigment antibodies. Cones labelled by antibody COS-1 constituted theExpand

Nonvisual photoreceptors of the deep brain, pineal organs and retina.
The role of the nonvisual photoreception is to synchronise periodic functions of living organisms to the environmental light periods in order to help survival of various species in differentExpand

Rom-1 is required for rod photoreceptor viability and the regulation of disk morphogenesis
The homologous membrane proteins Rom-1 and peripherin-2 are localized to the disk rims of photoreceptor outer segments (OSs), where they associate as tetramers and larger oligomers. Disk rims areExpand

Identification of the blue‐sensitive cones in the mammalian retina by anti‐visual pigment antibody
Monoclonal antibodies to visual pigments produced in our laboratory were applied to analyze the distribution of color‐specific photoreceptor cells in the retina (photoreceptor mosaic). WeExpand

Spatial and temporal differences between the expression of short‐ and middle‐wave sensitive cone pigments in the mouse retina: A developmental study
In an earlier study we found a topographic separation of middlewave‐sensitive (M) and shortwave‐sensitive (S) cones in the adult mouse retina. In the present study we investigated the development ofExpand

Photoreceptor distribution in the retinas of subprimate mammals.
Relevant data on the distribution of color cones are summarized, with special emphasis on the marked dorsoventral asymmetries observed in a number of mammalian species. In addition, an overview isExpand
